Viaducto de la polvorilla, San Antonio de los Cobres

Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
One of the highest viaducts in the world and a highlight of the "Train to the Clouds" rail tour, Viaducto de la polvorilla stretches across the valley at 223 m (732 ft) long, reaching a maximum height of 63 m (207 ft). The bridge's dark grey steel stands out against the rocky desert foreground. Several triangle shaped columns support the bridge, filled with support beams in a web like pattern. The bridge is not exclusive to the train tour-- hiking along the Toro River through the mountains provides a more adventurous route.

  • The trip to Los Cobres is absolutely stunning with incredible natural landscapes, ending at the underpass at great altitudes. I found even better than the famous Humahuaca.

  • Photo - nov. 2014 feel free to visit the site of the viaduct which is located at 4 200 m... The road from Salta is chaotic, take a break in San Antonio de los Cobres.

  • Incredible. A unique place. To 14kms from the train station of San Antonio de los Cobres, by gravel road from mountain with many saw, very slow movement.

  • Without words. A beauty and a demonstration that was attempted to be a sovereign country.
